There sure was a lot of vomiting on last night's Bones — from both people and reptiles — but every so often, the characters had some actual words come out of their mouths instead. So what were the most quotable words of wisdom from episode 2?

1. Brennan (Emily Deschanel): “My uterus and cervical plug are quite healthy.”  Leave it to Brennan to take even the most potentially embarrassing concepts and just throw ‘em right out there.  Let no one doubt that she’s got boffo genetics!

2. Booth (David Boreanaz): “...You used to watch?”  Really, this entire exchange — in which Booth and Sweets (John Francis Daley) think victim Tina the Python’s husband is totally cool with her prostituting — is just awesome. The poor husband surely just can’t imagine all the horrible thoughts going through Booth’s and Sweets’s heads...but we sure can! In the ancient Greek theatre world, that’s what we call dramatic irony.

3. Hodgins (TJ Thyne): “Okay!  I’m sorry!  All right?  I was...an ass-hat. I am Thurston the ass-hat!  There!  Now...how do you scare a snake in a fishin’ hole?!” Honestly, Hodgins gets steadily funnier with each season. Here he is at his best: wry, sardonic, and yet completely sincere. He takes Finn (Luke Kleintank)’s “Thurston” accusation and owns it, making it even more hilarious than when Finn himself came up with it. The more we watch this show, the more eagerly we anticipate whatever blessed one-liners might effuse from Hodgins’s beautiful, beautiful mouth.

So there you have it: words to live by!  Tune in next Thursday for all the most notable quotations in episode 3, “The Prince in the Plastic”!
